Cool Error 404s - post 'em here

For those who are unaware an 'Error 404' is hyper text transport protocol talk for "hi there, i'm the web server you just tried to request a page from - and guess what? It doesn't exist - well at least not under the name you're calling it'

I'm sure you've seen them a million times. In a previous life I customised them on a government server so that they were a bit more helpful than 'We don't got any!' - so they'd maybe have a link to a site map and the site search tool.

Some people do this a lot don't, sadly.

I just came across one that I wanted to share:

http://www.kitty-yo.net/mp3/JIMI_TENOR__BLACK_HOLE.mp3

If you come across any please share....

Oh yeah, if your an IE user remember to go into Tools|Internet Options|Advanced and turn off 'Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages'

The Spartan mascot changes each time and some of his positions are quite comical.
